WTF is up with that? He's never just shaken off a body shot. Hit him in the gut or the rib and he's AFU, blast the dude in the head and he's ready to come back harder.
Lawler put the stamp on him in the first, then Brown comes back to win the second. He gets his body busted up in 3 and 4, then says 'fuck it' and goes out and wins the 5th round.
If every body shot didn't take so much out of him, he might have beaten Lawler and got the title shot.
Awesome fight. Both guys put on an awesome display.
